Default Minolta XD-5: Buy or not?

Hi,
I currently have a DSLR (Nikon D50) and want to experiment with film cameras. I came across a CL posting for a Minolta XD-5 with 4 lenses (28mm, 45mm, 270mm, multi-zoom macro) for $75.

I would really appreciate it if any of you could advice me on whether thats a good buy or not. The guy selling seems really genuine.

Thanks,
Uday

That's not a bad price, but perhaps you could take a look at KEH.com and find something that would compliment your current Nikon.

Ah! That makes sense... I saw this post on CL and got carried away. I bought my D50 body on KEH. Will get on it! Thanks for the advice

u can probably find a good price on a n50/5005/6006/8008 or something on keh/ebay/cl that would fit well with your nikon kit.
